After double-clicking on any song from the album 'The King of Limbs' from Radiohead, my Spotify player crashes. I'm on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS running Spotify version 22.214.171.124.gf959d4ce
Anyone experiencing the same behavior? Anyone with a solution?
I tried installing libquicktime to see if it had anything to do with this other issue, but no luck.

The reason is most likely because you have added local files and Spotify found your The King of Limbs from Radiohead. Spotify has also managed to map those files to the Spotify version. Whenever you tried to play spotify tracks that the client has found that you have locally, it will try to play those local files instead.
Spotify on Linux before 1.0.3x something is buggy and would crash if you tried to play local files and didn't have the correct version of libav* libraries installed. 1.0.28 is quite old by now. For some reason, you have not received upgrades.
Follow the instructions on: https://www.spotify.com/download/linux/
This should upgrade the client. Current stable version on Linux is 1.0.49.
